Hi, 

we would like to give selected members from another website a code that they can use to sign up to a new forum. We want to avoid anyone without that code to be able to sign up for that forum. I know I could password protect the site (or page) but we don't want to bother members with this more than once, we just want to have it prompted one time before they can sign up, ideally as part of the sign up form. Can this be done? 

Thanks!

Hi @lappanion,

Thank you for using wpForo and for contacting us. 

The password protection feature doesn't belong to wpForo plugin. You should try to find some third-party plugin with such functionality.

I've found the following article. Please check it out. I think you'll find useful information for you:

Thank you but none of this would work.
